Description

Capitel San Rocco: sublime silkiness

A wine with a very old tradition, the Ripasso is obtained through an enological practice from which it also takes its name and consists in adding a part of Valpolicella wine produced in the previous autumn on the marcs of Amarone, after the latter has been decanted, generally in March. What derives from this process is called precisely 'review' because the wine in question is literally 'passed over' on the marcs of the older brother. Appreciated for this peculiarity, which makes it perfect immediately but able to make up to 10 years in bottles, the Capitel San Rocco of the Tedeschi family is a complex, sapid and structured wine with a sublime silkiness.

Bright and intense ruby red, it has a lively and exuberant nose of blueberries and violets, roasted tobacco notes and hints of cocoa and licorice, with a balsamic touch in the background. The taste is intense, almost chewable, with great involvement of the entire palate where it balances to perfection sapidity, freshness and alcoholicity, with rather exuberant tannins and long sapid trail on the finish.

To try with tagliatelle with duck sauce, it surprises with a Venetian liver.
